The purpose of the Support Program for Perinatal Deaths is to support young parents experiencing the loss of a child during pregnancy, at birth or during the first weeks/months of life. This unique program was initially developed in partnership with Mrs Manon Cyr of the Vaudreuil-Dorion C.S.S.S. and the Suroît hospital in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.

The E. Montpetit & fils funeral center supports families by offering free basic funeral services such as:

  • the planning meeting
  • the declaration of death if applicable
  • local transportation
  • cremation
  • the possibility of storing ashes in the columbarium


With such a program, no more children will leave the health facilities for a mass disposal facility where young families can never claim their child’s remains.
